Parents

We want all parents to know how our transportation system works and to work with us to help ensure the safety of everyone at Old Donation School (ODS). Please note:
  • Changes in transportation must be communicated in writing. Old Donation School will not accept transportation changes over the phone, by email or fax because we cannot verify the requestor’s information.

  • All transportation changes must be sent with students in the morning via a written note or dropped off by a parent to the office by 10:00 a.m.

  • All changes must be communicated by 10:00 a.m. on the day of the change. Weekly and monthly schedule changes with the expectation that staff remember to remind the child(ren) are not feasible.

  • Changes after 10:00 a.m. cannot be processed. Once the dismissal process begins (3:39 p.m.), we cannot make a change (i.e., pulling a child off of the bus or out of line to ride home with a parent) due to safety guidelines.

  • In the event a parent/guardian decides to pick-up a child rather than having them ride the bus and this change occurs without written notification by 10:00 a.m. on the day of the change, parents/guardians must arrive by 3:15 p.m. for early dismissal and should not park in the front of school loop. Please use spaces in the staff/visitor parking area only.
